When and where is the match?

Who will play?
Antonio Conte, Chelsea’s manager, is expected to start a strong Xl against Hull City and try to win this match and win the FA Cup as well this season after losing hope in winning the Premier League. However, some key players may be rested ahead of Barcelona’s match next week.
We predict the starting Xl to be as follows:
Goalkeeper: Willy Caballero
Defenders: Antonio Rudiger, Gary Cahill, Cesar Azpilicueta (captain)
Midfielders: Emerson Palmieri, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Ethan Ampadu, and Davide Zappacosta
Forward: Willian, and Alvaro Morata
Chelsea had a good form recently in the last match after their disastrous loses against Bournemouth FC and Watford FC. We expect Chelsea FC to beat Hull City 2-0.
Chelsea never lost at home, Stamford Bridge, against Hull City in all their matches in all the competitions before.
